Vedge Cafe Goes Vegan

Table Talk: October 2018

by Sabine Bickford

From the October, 2018 issue

Vedge Cafe, the vegetarian deli-style cafe that opened last year on N. Main, is going full vegan. Owner (and vegan) Amanda Ratke says they opened as vegetarian mainly to attract more business and hopefully to start converting more people to veganism. But, she says, "as time went on we found out that pretty much everybody wanted just vegan food."

In the end they had just one non-vegan sandwich to take off the menu when the announcement was made in August: a tomato, mozzarella, and basil number. Ratke says she thought about replacing the sandwich with a vegan option, but "I tried it with vegan mozzarella, and it's just not the greatest." She went instead with a vegan stromboli.

Vedge Cafe, 205 N. Main. 929-4485. Tues.-Fri. 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Mon.     (end of article)
